Ever paused to consider the weight of the phrase I am powerful? How does it settle in your heart? Sometimes, the universe sends us little nudges, reminding us of our inner strength. Are we open to receiving these messages? Do they make us feel invigorated or a tad uncomfortable?

There was this ordinary morning, driving my kids to school, when I expressed a simple wish to see a blue Morpho butterfly again – it had been weeks since the last sighting. Lo and behold, on my drive back home, what flutters by but a blue Morpho! In that moment, something profound happened. I whispered to myself, I am powerful. And wow, did that feel strange yet good!

Why did this experience strike such a chord with me? It was a beautiful affirmation that speaking our desires into existence is not just wishful thinking; it’s an act of power. We say out loud what we want in life by vocalizing our goals and taking deliberate steps toward them.

For so long, I kept silent about my work and ambitions. Doubts clouded my vision, and fear of judgment and failure kept me from owning where I was at. But witnessing that butterfly reminded me what it felt like to shed those insecurities and how far I have come.  That butterfly was a reminder to say out loud what I want out of life, take one step at a time, and confront the obstacles holding me back with acceptance and love.

The Journey to Owning My Power

My path to recognizing my own power within the professional sphere has been lengthy and ongoing. Standing firm in this realization as a woman comes with its own set of challenges. Voicing I am powerful can unleash a flood of internal resistance: Really? Who do you think you are? These doubts stem from fear – fear of judgment and misunderstanding from others.

Yet, embracing that I have power in my own life narrative feels liberating. It wasn’t always this way; insecurity, indecision and not using my voice used to be a companion, affecting every aspect of my professional life as I shifted from my career as a teacher into my entrepreneurial journey. Through Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), I  began to dismantle these insecurities, allowing me to step into my power and really embrace what I wanted for my life more fully.

Owning your power can evoke varied reactions from the world around you. It’s intriguing how the term powerful can carry so many connotations. But here’s where I stand today: owning my experiences and believing fervently in others’ ability to do the same.

Empowerment Versus Being Powerful

Is there a difference between feeling empowered and being powerful? It seems like a cycle where one state feeds into the other. By harnessing our personal strength, we can empower those around us – creating a ripple effect of positivity and growth.

Saying I am powerful is more than just words; it’s an affirmation of space in your life for strength and agency. This sentiment holds particular significance for women; it’s charged with layers of societal expectations and personal fears. Yet when embraced, it can lead to standing taller, speaking with conviction, supporting others wholeheartedly, making bold moves despite fear, maintaining openness to receive, taking decisive action, and finding balance.

Conversely, questioning our power leads down a rabbit hole of self-doubt, comparison, overthinking, criticism, worry – ultimately keeping us stagnant.

Today Is About Ownership

So here I am declaring it: I am powerful. And I invite you to do the same.

Try saying it out loud: I am powerful. How does that resonate with you? If this phrase stirs something within you or if you’re curious about exploring this idea further – reach out. Let’s embark on this journey together towards embracing our inner strength and owning our power without reservation.

Remember: Your voice is important, your dreams are valid; your actions have impact. You are powerful beyond measure – let’s claim that power together.
